Our recent trip to Italy was fabulous. Our travel company arranged everything down to the smallest detail so expectly, that it made our travels flawless. It's the little things that made things easier for us and brought a smile to our faces. From the friendly private drivers, to the first class train transportation, to the champagne welcoming us at each location; it was all so truly special. A special thank you to our tour guide in Venice for her guidance in getting us to and from our hotel and to our private guide for three days in Rome, who made us laugh, a lot!
Each of our hotels were wonderful as well (four star, boutique hotels). Centrally located so that we could walk everywhere. If you are staying on the grand canal in Venice, opt for the canal view rooms. The view was stunning.
Venice was the first city we visited in Italy. The private water taxi ride to our hotel on the Grande Canal was a wonderful introduction to this beautiful country and something that will be etched in our minds forever.
Do something off the beaten path or out of the ordinary to break up all the sightseeing. We did a cooking glass in Florence that was a ton of fun and was a welcome break from walking the city. Our day trip to Chianti was also very special as it allowed us to see and experience the Italian countryside. And the vineyard....magnifico!!!!
I honestly don't think I would do anything differently, may be spend one less day in Rome. Three full days in Rome was plenty to see all the sights and do the Vatican. In hindsight, we could have planned a day trip that last full day, but it was Christmas Eve and may places were closed, or closed early.
